Monday 13th July 

 

Hello Year 4! 

 

It is your final week of this school year and even though we should be having some fun together this week in school, I think it will be nice for us to remember all our fun memories we have had in Year 4! 

Some of mine include: 

-Our first week together where we designed our jigsaw pieces and wrote acrostic poems for our names 

-Our Egyptian topic when we wrote some hieroglyphics and made pyramids

-Outdoor learning day where we got a bit drenched but had lots of fun with leaves and the fire pit

-Our Great Plague topic when we role played a London Street in class 

-Swinging Sixties day when we learnt new dance moves and about mods and rockers!

-YOGA with Danielle 

 

The list could go on because we have had so many fun times and you've all done AMAZING work this year! Every one of you should be so proud of this school year because you have learnt so much and been wonderful individuals. 

 

This week I think it will nice for you to have a think about all our amazing times in Year 4 (before lock down) and make a  Year 4 memoir  to record your memories.

 

Write about: 

-Who your best friends are and what makes them great friends (you could draw pictures too)

-What subject/lessons you have enjoyed the most this year and why (you might have a few) 

-You favourite lunch time and play time memories (with your friends or adults) 

-Your favourite book that we have read in class this year and why (see if you can remember them all)

-Your funniest memory in school where you laughed a lot (I can think of a few funny ones) 

 

I miss you all and cannot wait to see you again soon. I would love to see your memoirs so please send me a photo of them to our email: EMyear4@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk 

 

Take care guys and I am still available to email over summer if you want to chat or ask me anything!

Hello everyone! 

 

There are only two weeks left until it would have been our summer holidays and I know this year hasn't turned out the way we all thought it would do but you should all be extremely proud of yourselves and all your hard work you've been doing at home. I can't wait to see you all again in September and even though I won't be your teacher next year, I will still be around if you ever want to talk or just say hi! Stay positive guys, you're all SUPER.

Bonjour everyone! 

 

It is the second week of having some children back in school! Last week went really well for the reception kids so some Year 1 pupils will be in this week. We had to wash our hands frequently, keep our distance when playing and do lots of cleaning BUT we all still had fun. I hope you are all still staying positive and having fun at home. Another BIG well done to those who are completing all their home learning tasks. Please do try to send me your work from your exercise book to:  EMyear4@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

This week's work explained:

 

Grammar and Spellings: 

Purple Mash- Positive emotion meanings and Summer 2 Week 5 Spellings 

 

Maths:

Times Table Rock Stars- Have a good go on Garage, Studio and Sound check to test your times tables speed! (Challenge me to a Rock Slam too!) 

 

English:

Purple Mash- Make a persuasive leaflet to persuade people to come to your theme park! You can use the purple mash template OR do it in your exercise book. Tell me: the name, about the rides/attractions, food places, costs and why they should visit. You can even draw one of your rides to put on the leaflet. 

 

RE: 

Noah built his ark for him and his family to stay safe and for all the animals. Design your own ark (boat) and show who you would bring with you. Can you tell me why you would bring each person? What makes them a good person? 

 

Science:

BBC Bitesize- Conductors and Insulators.

Follow this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2882hv/articles/zxv482p

1. Watch the video and complete the activity. 

2. In your book, explain the difference between conductors and insulators. You could include diagrams too. 

 

Keep going guys! As I have said before, I am so proud of you all because I know you will all just be getting on and making the best out the situation. I can't wait to see you all and even though it might still be a while, we WILL all be back together eventually! 

 

Stay positive :) 

From Miss Jeffrey 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 22nd June

 

Nǐ hǎo everyone!

 

It's the first day back today for some reception children! Miss Walker and I are in the reception classroom and we have set it up with some fun 'social distanced' activities. It has been 13 weeks now since we were all in school together but don't worry because I will still be around when you all come back to school! I can't wait to see you all! :) 

 

This week's work explained: 

 

Grammar and spellings: 

Purple Mash- Avoiding nice and Summer 2 Week 4 spellings 

 

Maths:

MyMaths- Finding fractions of amounts (draw them out in your book to help) 

 

English: 

Purple Mash- Write instructions for how to make your favourite sandwich. Remember to be very specific with your steps and to explain exactly how to make it. Don't just say 'Put some bread on a plate'. Say something like 'First go into a cupboard and get a large plate to put on the counter'. You can complete it on Purple Mash OR just write it up in your exercise book. 

 

RE:

As we know, a rainbow is a symbol for hope. God put a beautiful rainbow in the sky after the flood so that Noah and his family knew that they could now go live their lives in peace. 

Draw a rainbow in your exercise book and for each coloured strand, write something that you are hoping for in the future. Here is an example of one: 

 

 

Science: 

BBC Bitesizehttps://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2882hv/articles/zcwnv9q

1. Watch the video and complete the match up task. 

2. Find and write down what electrical appliances you have in your house that make: light, sound, movement and heat. Make a table in your book and find as many as you can for each heading. Be safe and do not touch or mess with any appliances. 

 

I hope you enjoy this week's work and I would love to hear how you are all doing at home! I am just an email away: EMyear4@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk 

 

Take care guys

From Miss Jeffrey :) 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 15th June 

 

Hola everyone! 

 

Half way through June wow! Hopefully we are all getting used to our new routines at home now and still managing to do some super fun things. A BIG well done to everyone completing their home learning tasks. Please do try to complete any tasks that I have set on Purple Mash and MyMaths and send me some photos :) 

 

This week's work explained: 

 

Grammar and Spellings:

Purple Mash- Avoiding Said and Summer 2 Week 3 Spellings 

 

Maths: 

MyMaths- Equivalent fractions using shading on fraction strips 

Watch this video to recap: https://youtu.be/rOL-_9OQHAQ 

 

English:

You are going to describe your ideal pet (it can be a real or imaginary animal). Tell me all about: its features, its colours, its fur/skin, the way it moves, the sounds it makes and of course its name! Find some really awesome adjectives using an online thesaurus! You can draw it too if you want but please send me a photo of your work: EMyear4@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk. 

 

RE: 

God made this beautiful world for us all to live in and because humans didn't treat it properly he caused a flood. Noah was a good man who looked after the Earth. Think about the ways that YOU can look after the Earth...you could use google to get inspiration and talk to your family.

Design a poster to show how you and others should look after our world. 

 

Science: 

Circuits! Watch this video: https://youtu.be/HOFp8bHTN30 to learn about what a circuit is and the components (things) that make up a circuit. 

Purple Mash- Describe the circuit components and use the internet to find the 'symbols' (diagrams) for each component. Can you draw a circuit in your book and label just like the one from the video? 

 

I hope you enjoy this week's activities and well done guys for all your hard work that you are doing at home! 

 

Take care everyone, miss you all so much! 

From Miss Jeffrey :)

Maths: 

MyMaths- Equivalent fractions (Watch this video to help recap: https://youtu.be/qcHHhd6HizI )

2. Write a letter to Noah to give to him whilst he was on the ark. What would you say to him to give him hope and reassurance that everything will be OK?

Just Like Noah and his family, we are stuck inside our own ark with our families during lockdown. Have a think about what promises you want to make and how you will keep them up. Write an acrostic poem for the word RAINBOW and for each letter, write a sentence explaining something you want to do for yourself or someone else after lockdown. Write in your exercise book and send Miss Jeffrey a photo. 

 

Science:

Purple Mash- Write up your experiment to test how well 5 different objects float in water. Use the template on purple mash but write up in your books.

Just because we are at home, doesn't mean we can't do some amazing learning! I hope you have fun completing this week's activities and I would love to see your work.

Bonjour everyone! 

 

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter weekend. Maybe eating lots of chocolate, playing with your families and sunbathing in the warm sun. Miss Jeffrey was silly and did not put sun cream on her arms and they burnt oops! I am going to try spend some time outside every day (unless its raining) as it can be very boring stuck inside can't it!

 

Here is a list of some things I used to love doing outside in my garden when I was your age:

 

-Bringing my toys out and taking them on an adventure

-Having a picnic lunch outside on a blanket or towel

-Playing don't drop the ball with my brother (see if you can get more than 10!)

-Bring paper and pencils outside and draw some nature 

-Make an obstacle course using random things and race my brother 

-Find as many different bugs as we could (Use a magnifying glass if you have one) 

-Practicing doing handstands, cartwheels and roly-polys 

 

If you come up with some other fun things to do outside, email me and let me know and I can add to the list for everyone. 

 

Have fun guys, missing you all! 

 

From Miss Jeffrey :)
